Strip 1536x1024

Earth hour takes place from 8:30 to 9:30 tonight and the Las Vegas strip will look a little different as some venues go dark during this time, via

Count Caesars Entertainment, one of the largest Strip operators, among the gaming companies participating Earth Hour. The company said it will turn off all non-essential lighting at its Las Vegas venues during the aforementioned hour on Saturday night.

That includes the iconic Eifel Tower at the Paris — an integrated resort named for the French capital, which, ironically, is often referred to as “the city of lights.”

Caesars says it’s participating in the event to boost awareness of climate change.

Every year, at 8:30 pm on the last Saturday of March, supporters in over 190 countries and territories unite, taking action on and raising awareness of the issues facing our one home,” according to Earth Hour’s sponsors.

Venetian Las Vegas and the Venetian Expo are also participating, but Wynn Resorts says Wynn and Encore will not go dark, reports Fox5 Las Vegas.

Started in 2007 by WWF and partners as a symbolic lights-out event in Sydney to raise awareness of climate change, Earth Hour is now one of the world’s largest grassroots movements for the environment. Held every year on the last Saturday of March, Earth Hour engages supporters in more than 190 countries and territories, all taking action to ensure a brighter future for people and the planet.

Earth Hour has also gone far beyond the symbolic action of switching off – it has become a catalyst for positive environmental impact, driving major legislative changes by harnessing the power of the people and collective action.

Earth Hour is open-source and we welcome everyone, anyone, to take part and help amplify our mission and impact.
